Freewing Lippisch P.15 64mm EDF Jet - PNP
64mm Freewing Lippisch P.15 - Receiver Ready (PNP) - FJ11011P
The Wright Brothers, Kelly Johnson, Willy Messerschmitt, Igor Sikorsky, R.J. Mitchell, Burt Rutan. Not every contributor to aviation history has enjoyed the same notoriety as these innovators, but Motion RC and Freewing are proud to celebrate the engineer Alexander Lippisch, by producing the world’s first and only Lippisch P.15 flying wing concept jet! Envisioned by Lippisch in 1944 as a jet powered version of his innovative rocket propelled Me-163 Komet, the P.15 would have taken the Komet concept even further, utilizing a blend of all-new and reused parts from the He-162 and Bf-109. Repurposing the Bf-109’s landing gear allowed the P.15 to take off and land conventionally, compared to the rocket sled and skid landed Me-163. Optimized for affordability and easy flight behavior, our intent in developing Freewing’s 64mm ParkJet series also seeks to illuminate rare and overlooked aircraft, and the P.15 is our first in this effort! Join us in celebrating Alexander Lippisch and his innovative P.15 flying wing!
The Freewing 64mm P.15 continues the ParkJet series following the incredibly popular F-8 Crusader and F-105 Thunderchief. After two American fighter jets, we’re changing things up to spotlight the excellent characteristics of an Axis-designed flying wing from the Second World War. Compared to the F-8 and F-105, the P.15 is even more stable, more potentially acrobatic, and more efficient. In ideal conditions, its low wing loading can allow for 50% longer flight times on the same battery with throttle management. Aside from having a very low stall speed which will appeal to beginner pilots looking to fly slower and learn to fly an EDF, the P.15 also has lots of high speed potential for advanced pilots who are more comfortable with lighting fast rolls, snaps, and tumbles! The cockpit has even been designed to accommodate a micro FPV camera, or for recording your flight with a standalone camera such as the RunCam or Mobius. We are thrilled with the wide flight envelope of this model and its perfect marriage balancing fidelity to a scale jet’s appearance and an RC flying wing’s all-around “easy factor”.
For novice pilots wanting to learn how an EDF jet handles versus a propeller driven model aircraft of a similar size, the Freewing 64mm P.15 makes an ideal first hand launch EDF. Assembly is straightforward, and uses only two servos to minimize weight, complexity, and cost. Like the F-8 Crusader and F-105D Thunderchief, the Lippisch P.15 is is configured to be flown using a radio that supports Elevon mixing. The battery bay can also accommodate a small gyro for additional stabilization. We recommend the manual’s Low Rate throws for your maiden flight. The roll rate can be very quick on High Rate, so the contrast between the light gray underside and the dark green camouflage upperside helps with orientation!
Powered by an efficient 64mm 5 blade EDF fan unit, 30A ESC and 2627-4500kv brushless outrunner motor, the Freewing 64mm P.15 Thunderchief reaches a top speed of 116kph/72mph using a single inexpensive Admiral 3S 1000 mAh - 2200 mAh lipo battery with XT60 connector. While designed with simplified flight control surfaces and intended for hand launches and belly landing on grass runways, an optional landing gear set is sold separately for steerable operation on paved runways.
The Lippisch P.15 has never been modeled in foam PNP before, and we know you’ll be as pleased as we are with how this model flies. Own this rare model today!

LIP 15 at NEAT Fair 2018
Last week I was at NEAT Fair 2018 and there was a squadron of SIX of these, 2 of which were modified to fly on 4S. I saw as many of 4 of them in the air at once, didn't bring mine, one of them flown by a world class Futaba sponsored pilot. They got real eye popping oohs and ahs from the crowd. I can't fly mine quite as well as those guys but it really showed how well these fly at high speed with dazzling aerobatics. I'm sure there will be lots of NEAT video posted but not sure if anyone got these babies in action.
Best fun for 100 bucks out there....
I have been flying this most of the summer and these are my thoughts on it. Mine is bone stock, running it on 3S 45C 2200mah. battery. To use this you must push it as far back as it will go. I launch it full throttle holding in full up elevator. throw it straight out or slightly up from level. Throw it hard. mine flies straight out every time. once it gets a little speed you can ease back on the elevator. it is surprisingly fast once it is rolling. No problem with unlimited vertical. I am normally the guy that hot rods everything, but not this one. I just really like how it flies just the way it is. Start out with maybe 2 mm up deflection on the ailerons, this will get you close, I run maybe 80 percent full travel in the elevator and about 25 percent in ailerons. Any more than this and it will spin like a top. it glides for a long time so be aware of that. Good Luck! I hope you like yours as much as I like mine. I might buy another one just because!
This flying wing just flew great and was fun to fly with everything about it was just gorgeous! Although I would not try the landing gear I have heard there not that great better off just landing in the grass on its belly.
As promised. Lol.
Freewing Lippisch P.15
Very nice flying model but scary on the launch. A 2200 mAh lipo makes it rather nose heavy. Shorter flights with a 40c 1300mAh lipo are fine. It glides very well and skim-on landings are easy and fun.
Out of control !!!
I’m an intermediate pilot I recently purchased this little jet because a good friend of mine has one and it look like it would be a blast to fly. Not so much, first flight I believe was my fault I put a little up trim on a switch took off got a little ways in the air and I cut the throttle and it fell to the ground my bad. Minor damage so glued it back together second flight was completely out of control I could never gain control it ended up going over the parking lot and luckily came down in between two vehicles but pretty much destroyed the fuselage and I don’t know that I want to pay $37 for a new one.
This is a wonderful model
The Lippisch P 15 is my first EDF. I bought it because of its good reviews and videos. It is even better than that! Admittedly, I don't fly WOT all the time, rather the contrary, with an occasional full bore low pass and some giant loops and half cuban eights for turnarounds. I flew at least 9 minutes with a 1800 3S 25C battery. That is efficiency! Very simple assembly, excellent instructions, great service from Motion RC. A total winner.
This plane is a blast to fly!
The only downside of this plane is it doesn't come with a pilot figure, everything else about it is great! I added a 12 blade fan, new motor, 50a ESC, and a rudder servo. Even with the extra weight of these things, and a 2200 3 cell, she's light on the wings and hand launching is easy : ) The quality of the plane is great, the parts fit well together and the finish is great as well.
Great little plane. Flying it on low rates til I get use to it. Unlimited verticals climbs. Added some “Invasion stripes” for better visibility. Using a 1600 mah battery, I landed after 3 or 4 minutes and still had 64% left in the battery. I think the next jet you should do is the Douglas Sky Ray. I think Lippisch was instrumental in its design.
